Hey people. I was surfing the web and I stumbled upon this web page which is a map of where it is legal to discharge firearms. This map is 15 years old . http://mappery.com/fullsize-name/Los-Angeles-County-Firearms-Closure-Area-Map. Is there any map like this which is up to date? Or are the same areas still in effect? I'm thinking that it is too outdated because Angeles isn't even on the map, and I've never heard of those shooting ranges other than Burro and A Place to Shoot.

I wouldn't use that map as some places may have been closed down permanently or for instance the availability of the national forest shooting areas can be affected by whether or not it's fire season.

Take a look at RedHorse's thread: California shooting ranges indoor/outdoor database (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=34480)

It actually seems that they include updated GPS coordinates that you can use to create a map. . . Anyone capable of using this data and compiling it?

Title 13 Chapter 66 gives the updated coordinates as of 8/11/09 and should be updated 8/21/09.

It could be done but it will be time consuming as half of them reference just the township and the other half reference gps coordinates and township. There is an overlay for Google Earth that will show you the townships but you would have to draw out the legal shooting areas using their polygon tool and reading the descriptions.

The reason they are on their map is they are on federal land and have a permit from the forest service, Angeles is on private property inside the forest..
